Political Economy

Our research explores the intersections between politics and economics at local, national, regional and global levels. We have particular strengths in international and European political economy, critical international political economy, and global economic governance and regulation.

Our current research focuses on, amongst other things, the critique of classical political economy, international organisations in global politics (especially the World Bank and WTO), small states, regionalism, trade liberalisation and adjustment, financial regulation, food chains, the political economy of the new Europe, the relationship between state, economy, and society, and issues of depoliticisation.
